light steamed green teaAsamushi Sencha The green teas in this category, known in Japanese as "asamushi-cha", or light steamed green teas, are steamed for a shorter period of time than your typical sencha. The period in which any green tea is steamed depends on various characteristics such as where it was grown, elevation, etc. Like deep steamed green tea, not all green teas are suitable for light steaming.

            Sae Midori Organic Asamushi Sencha

            Découvrez les saveurs incomparables de Kagoshima avec notre précieux Organic Sae Midori Asamushi. Ce thé vert exceptionnel, une rareté légèrement infusée du clone Sae Midori, est récolté lors de la première cueillette de jeunes feuilles, offrant une délicatesse unique difficile à trouver. Lorsque nous avons introduit ce thé pour la première fois en 2017, son goût captivant d'umami et sa richesse aromatique ont immédiatement conquis notre cœur, et nous savions qu'il devait devenir un incontournable de notre collection.

            Cette version légèrement infusée est plus aromatique et savoureuse que ses homologues profondément infusés, ce qui en fait un incontournable pour les amateurs de thés verts subtils et raffinés. Chaque gorgée promet une explosion de saveur à la fois vivifiante et apaisante.

            Comme pour toutes nos sélections de feuilles en vrac de première qualité, ce thé est emballé dans un conditionnement à l'azote pour garantir qu'il vous parvienne dans des conditions optimales. Chaque paquet contient 100 grammes de ce thé exquis, parfait pour ceux qui apprécient les choses raffinées de la vie.

            Veuillez noter : En raison de sa popularité et de sa disponibilité limitée, ce thé est souvent épuisé chaque année en décembre. Sécurisez votre part de cette rare délice tant que notre stock le permet et profitez d'un ajout vraiment spécial à votre collection de thés.

                              Loose leaf asamushi sencha will usually have large leaf particles and are suitable to be brewed in all types of Japanese green teapots, including those with ceramic "sesame" filters. When brewed, light steamed green tea tends to have a clear, light appearance, usually a bit on the yellowish side, subtle flavors, but it is often quite aromatic.  Asamushi can also be somewhat astringent depending on the individual tea. If you've never tried a light steamed green tea, we do have the best in what Japan has to offer, try one today!
